Closing Time

Monday, March 2, 2015 – JetBlue Park, Ft. Myers

Spring Training Workout

Monday was the last day of workouts before games kick off Tuesday against Boston College and Northeastern.  In the meantime, it was another fun day of fielding drills, live B.P., and batting practice.  We got to see Justin Masterson and Koji Uehara pitch, cutoff and relay drills, and more long batting practice bombs.  We also got autographs from pitching coach Juan Nieves, Garin Cecchini, and Sean Coyle.  Some of my favorite pictures from the day are below.

Shane Victorino has been batting from both sides of the plate all week, even running the bases between rounds of B.P., and he's not showing any signs of the injuries that plagued him last year.

I don't know what Brian Butterfield is saying, but it's cracking Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval, and Brock Holt up.

Garin Cecchini, the third base prospect who made his major league debut last year, signed autographs after practice.

Since today's workout was the last of the year before games start, I can't think of a better way to close it out than with a picture of Koji Uehara, who faced live batters today.

The weather was absolutely perfect today, so after eating lunch in our car and sampling the gelato at Norman Love’s Artisan Gelato right down the street from the ballpark, we made the drive to Sarasota and spent the afternoon at Siesta Key beach, where we saw a genuine (sort of) Florida gator:

You can't expect to spend a week in Florida without seeng a gator. We found this one at the beach.
